Creating a portal?
Someone I know is interested in creating a psp portal, but tbh I don't know what one is so I can't help him and I was hoping you could help me / him. Start off with the dumbass question... what is a portal? Is it possible to create a portal? Is it easy? Does it need lots of code? Is it too ambitious?
Questions over for now...
Sorry for, again, being a n00b!!!!:ROFL: :tup:
here's an example of a portal, http://mobile.station.sony.com/. it's basically a website optimized for the psp screen size with links to flash games, hyperlinks to websites, etc. i never use them...but some do. very basic html knowledge would be needed to make your own and no it's not difficult.
Aah thanks for the reply mate! Do you know if it's possible to create one... is it just like a normal website but optimised for PSP?
sorry i edited my post while you were replying i think. yes it is possible to make one. all you need is basic html knowledge and web space.
Nice one... could you do it on a free host or not then? I'm a cheapskate! :D
sure. the only difference between free hosting and paid hosting is features like mysql db connections, php, asp, etc. portals just use basic html. free is good.
Do you know any decent free hosts that would allow you to do it then?
I like Freewebs but would that be any good?
sure. i don't see why that hosting site wouldn't work. most of the freebies have online site creation tools only thing is if you want your site to be optimized for psp you have to use tables and centering like the example i posted above. do you have frontpage? that's an easy program to accomplish this. dreamweaver works too but a little bit steeper learning curve. or you can code by hand which may take a while especially learning table commands. if you want a freebie you can try trellian webpage, http://www.trellian.com/webpage/index.html it's an alright wysiwyg editor.
I don't have either lol but if I want to do this properly I could get one or the other. I have very breifly used both, but don't have them or know how to do anything on them!
Thanks for the freebie... will check it out!
Thanks again for your help!
